City by the Bay

I went to San Francisco last week for work. I LOVE this city!
I stayed at the W and they had these great window seats.

I had a great view of the Bay Bridge.

I went to an alumni event for our doctors at a winery. It was on Treasure Island and we had to drive across the Bay Bridge to get there. The views on the bridge were beautiful.

I went on a run one morning and discovered Yerba Buena Gardens next to my hotel.

There were a lot of people out doing tai chi, walking and jogging.

I had a morning to roam the city and I went to Chinatown in search of the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. It took me almost an hour to find the place. It is located in an alley and my iPhone located it, but I kept walking past it. The sign for it was tiny and it wasn't quite what I had in mind, but the cookies were fresh and oh so good!

See that yellow sign on the right hand side. Yeah, that's the place.

My purchase

They give you a handful of unfolded cookies with your purchase.

Chinatown is so colorful!



After Chinatown I headed to Ghiradelli Square to visit my favorite little store and eatery.
{see pics of the store in this post from my April visit and here for more about my trip last Spring.}

You can't visit San Francisco without riding a trolley.


I saw the Rangers signing autographs outside of their hotel.
I left the day of game 1. We won't talk about the outcome of the series. :(

I really want to take Ty to San Francisco one day. There is so much to do there that I haven't had a chance to do on my work trips. Things are always better with him. :)
